Praise for previous anthology (Love Hurts) edited by Tricia Reeks and Kyle Richardson:
"'I ve always had a taste for dark, ' says Reeks in her introduction, and she goes on to prove it with a top-shelf selection of tales, 20 of which are original to this book. . . A well-organized, wide-ranging collection of consistently strong genre stories." -- Kirkus Reviews
"For fans of weird and beautifully written genre fiction, LOVE HURTS is a work that delivers 26 distinct emotional roller coaster rides, each as different from one another as they are from any other story you ve probably ever read. As full of creativity as it is of heartbreak, it s a book that truly is full of surprises." -- IndieReader (4.5 Stars)
